The Hartke HX410 HyDrive is a rugged 1,000 watt 4 x 10 bass cabinet with plenty of power, and more tonal range than most other bass cabs.
Hybrid Design Speakers
The distinguishing feature of the HX410 are its hybrid aluminum/paper cones that were specially engineered by Hartke to deliver a bass tone with a more punchy and crisp articulation. The center of each the four 250 watt 10-inch HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone drivers is made of aluminum, to provide the best possible response for mid- and high-end tones. Meanwhile, the outer rim of the cones is made of paper, which carries the low-end frequencies and leads to an overall warmth of tone. The tonal properties of the HX410 are further reinforced by the inclusion of a High Frequency Attenuation switch that operates at the functional dynamic range or drops another -6 dB when you need it to.
Incredible Speaker Performance
The cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets allows the HyDrive speakers to run significantly cooler than other speakers, and to deliver more reliable power handling at peak performance. The tone on these speakers remains completely pure and undistorted, even at the loudest possible output.
The HyDrive speakers also deliver a surprising power-to-weight ratio with their proprietary design. A HyDrive 10-inch speaker weighs 40% less than the average 10-inch LF transducer, which adds up to a lot less to lug around. Built-in casters and rugged metal handles make transport easy, and the cabinet weighs less and is smaller than many comparable 4 x 10 designs. It weighs in at about 70 pounds, which makes it easily one of the lightest 4 x 10 cabinets on the market. With built-in casters and rugged metal handles, this bass cab is exceptional transportable.
Ready For Most Amps
The cabinet on the Hartke HX410 HyDrive is sealed, dual-chamber cabinet design that delivers maximum forward punch. The back of the cabinet features Speakon and 1/4-inch inputs. Generally speaking, the Hartke HX410 HyDrive is built to work with as many possible different amplifier heads as possible, to accommodate the complex tastes of contemporary players. It will integrate well up to its 1,000 watts of continuous power, and will accept any signal with a properly rated 8-ohm nominal impedance.

Professional performance and ample power were two critical considerations that heavily factored into the design of the HX410. The need for contemporary bassists to reach high volume levels with seamless performance is a common demand these days, but being able to do so with a durable, portable cabinet that only weighs 68 pounds is practically unheard of. This is where the HX410 bass cabinet comes in.
With power to spare, the HX410 features four 250 watt 10-inch HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone drivers for a total power handling of 1,000 watts. This HyDrive cabinet is beautifully appointed with a steel grill, steel corners, recessed handles and removable casters, making it both resilient and easy to transport. The HyDrive HX410 is a sealed, dual-chamber cabinet constructed from the highest quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joints, making it rigid yet lightweight for superior projection and true sonic clarity.
The HyDrive HX410 was designed for demanding players who need critical performance at intense volume levels. Perfectly suited for all kinds of bass playing, Hartke engineers also specifically designed the HX410 with the midrange frequencies rock players rely on night after night on stages all over the world. With the power and versatility of the HyDrive speakers housed in a perfectly suited enclosure, it's clear that the HX410 performs on a level far beyond any ordinary bass cabinet.
What is HyDrive?
HyDrive transducers represent a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology and a major leap forward, fusing paper and aluminum in a roadworthy speaker design that is more robust and efficient than anything available.
With Hartke's HyDrive series, you get the best of both worlds: the warm tone of traditional paper cones and the clear, punchy attack of aluminum. HyDrive's patented Hybrid Cone Technology produces a speaker that uses an outside paper cone to push a warm, deep low frequency and an inner aluminum cone that produces mids and highs that cut, yet still remain sweet.
One of the most important advances with the HyDrive speaker is its power-to-weight ratio. A HyDrive speaker weighs 40% less than traditional speakers and delivers 250 watts for the highest power-to-weight ratio of any bass speaker available. But the innovation runs even deeper. Because of its cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets, HyDrive speakers operate cooler and deliver more reliable power handling at peak performance.
